Firstly, 2018 works fine...

Now the problem...turn on edges...if you hover near the centre of a has a hard time selecting....however go near the corners or an edge and you cursor will activate. You can go around the back and try this as it's easier to see around back with just plain flat faces.

Same problem as selecting an edge...the edges on those problematic faces are damn hard to have to go near their ends for the cursor to activate

You shouldn't have a problem with selecting the polygon, as far as edges go, ever since they replaced the viewport engine with Nitrous it's had an issue selecting edges in perspective view where if an edge is a certain size in the view then it will have trouble selecting.

This was a bug in Max 2017, but it seems to be fixed in 2018.

This was in my bug report for 2017. Does it look similar to your problem? (I don't have 2017 installed anymore.)
